Happy New Year!
Am I the only one Freaking out just a little that it’s 2015? Seriously, time is going by too fast and I hate it! For New Years, my family and I went to a get-together with our college friends, and now we have been friends with most of these couples for 10 plus years, and I just can’t believe it.
But maybe I should sit back and Make The Best of Everything for a minute. I CAN’T control how old I am getting or how time is flying by WAY TOO FAST ( I just turned 32 last week). But I CAN control to take care of myself and to eat healthy so I can live life to the fullest!
This THREE ingredient blender ice cream has no added sugar and is vegan. ( although you can add some yogurt or a little milk if you like) It also tastes wonderful. Best part? my kids love it!
- 2 Frozen Bananas
- 1/2 Lemon- juice and zest
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- optional 1 tablespoon of milk OR 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt ( this will add creaminess)
- The night before, place unpeeled bananas in a freezer bag and freeze the bananas overnight. Place frozen bananas, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla extract in your blender. Blend your mixture until you get an ice cream like texture. You may have to stop your blender a few times to “scrape the sides” of the blender or to stir the mixture a mit
Hope this wonderfully healthy dessert helps you keep your New Years Resolutions! I personally think the more lemon zest you add, the better this recipe tastes! Now, I just want warm weather to eat this ice cream in. ( it’s been about 10 degrees, here in northern Iowa)
